Rock of Ages
Text by: Augustus M. Toplady 1740-1872
Rock of Ages, cleft for me,
Let me hide myself in thee;
Let the water and the blood,
From thy wounded side which flowed,
Be of sin the double cure,
Save from wrath and make me pure.
Not the labor of my hands
Can fill all they law's demands;
Could my zeal no respite know,
Could my tears forever flow,
All fro sin could not atone;
Thou must save, and thou alone.
...Rock of Ages cleft for me,
let me hide myself in thee.
"And he said, The LORD is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer;
The God of my rock; in him will I trust: he is my shield, and the horn of my salvation, my high tower, and my refuge, my saviour; thou savest me from violence.
For who is God, save the LORD? and who is my rock, save our God?
God is my strength and power: and he maketh my way perfect."
~2 Samuel 22:2-3, 32-33
Have a wonderfully Happy Sunday,
